Alright, I am convinced.  Let's implement it this way, then.

If there's sufficient time, the linear approach can be substituted
by a binary one then (while still doing it only on-demand, of course).

It would be even more efficient to store the last known value that
worked somewhere.  Perhaps /var/cache would be a good idea?
